:00 out west. thank you for starting your day with us. >> we start with the shocking revelation from the now former cia director, general david petraeus. petraeus resigned from his post citing an extramarital affair. he had met personally with the president thursday to offer his resignation. the president reluctantly accepted friday. the general's affair was actually uncovered during an investigation by the fbi. the fbi's involvement has raised questions with at least one former cia operative. >> i'm not going to, but there are four or five cia directors that i know were carrying on extramarital affairs while they were director. the fbi was never brought in. the office of security was never brought in. it was ignored. it went away quietly. we'll never know about them. so this is absolutely extraordinary. i'm telling you it's more to do than with sex. there's something going on here which i can't explain and i think we're going to find out very soon. >> petraeus took over as cia chief after a long career in the army, most recently as the man leading operations in afghanistan. the cia

diverse than it used to be. this could indicate that virginia will be a swing state for some time to come. finally, florida. now you'll notice florida is yellow on some of our maps. that's because we haven't yet called florida. too close to call right now. however, the president is on top and they'll be counting more ballots in miami-dade county a little bit later on. it's interesting, even though no one's called the race yet in florida that may be the state that the romney people set the tone knowing that they would lose as the night went on. because they knew if they weren't winning in florida, it was going to be nearly impossible for them to win this election. so that's the states that the president used to put together his victory. let's talk about some of the coalition of voters he used to get there. christine romans. >> the exit polling so fascinating, john, because if you really dig into what this vote looked like and what people thought. of those who voted 47% were men. of those, 52% voted for mitt romney. but look at women. women here came out strong, they came out for the presid
